Vubiq Networks Selects Vitesse for Wireless Broadband Platform

LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)--

Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC solutions for Carrier, Enterprise and Internet of Things (IoT) networks, announced that Vubiq Networks is using Vitesse's CEServices™ software, Serval-Lite™ VSC7416 Carrier Ethernet switch engine, and VSC8574 Gigabit Ethernet PHY for Vubiq Networks' latest generation 60GHz millimeter wave wireless system targeted at wireless fiber extension and 4G / LTE (News - Alert) backhaul applications.

Industry experts expect the unlicensed 60GHz band to add significantly more capacity to 4G LTE and LTE-Advanced networks, easing overcrowding on the 2.5GHz and 5GHz public bands used today for Wi-Fi. Compared to the latter two, the 60GHz frequency is largely uncongested and is approved for use throughout the US, Europe and much of Asia. According to 4G Americas (News - Alert), mobile user data utilization could rise from the current 15MB of mobile data daily to 1GB per day by 2020, making use of spectrum alternatives imperative for service providers to meet the mobile broadband demand.

"Wireless links need to integrate quality of service, security, traffic management and other enhanced network functionality for carriers to effectively deliver services to their customers," said Mike Pettus, Vubiq Networks chief technology officer and co-founder. "We were looking for carrier-class technologies incorporating advanced service-aware networking features. Working with Vitesse gave us access t their unique service-aware Ethernet switch architecture, helping us to quickly commercialize a solution meeting service provider needs."

"Easy service provisioning and management are critical for carriers. To support this, mobile networks require far more intelligence at the network edge to handle the bandwidth-hungry applications that consumers routinely demand," said Larry O'Connell, product marketing director at Vitesse. "Vitesse's Service-Aware (News - Alert) Architecture, or ViSAA™, integrates that intelligence into access and edge network equipment, enabling MEF CE 2.0-compliant solutions that readily support wireless network demands."
